About Artengine

Artengine aims to deepen the practices of artists, designers and critics around emerging technologies for creative production, and to reflect on specific urgencies in society and the arts.

Questions of technological change and cultural change have become entangled, almost inextricably, and this brings as many challenges as it does opportunities.

The complex space of these challenges and opportunities is where Artengine thrives.

Our activities take place across three complementary, mutually reinforcing platforms:

Thought Leadership

Artengine drives conversation about emergent practices in art and technology. We connect and spread ideas through symposia, publications, workshops and open studios.  By engaging in local, national, and international dialogue about groundbreaking fields and their social impact, we connect Ottawa to the larger creative world.

Critical Creation

Artengine serves as a nexus for creative experimentation with technology, art, and society. Our creative workshop space serves as the physical space for creative thinking and critical making. Artists use our workshop to collaborate and combine vastly different disciplines such as architecture, biology, fashion, art, design, media technology, engineering, sociology, gaming, and robotics in new and exciting ways. The lab is activated through commissions, artist-in-residence programs and self-directed projects.

Public Presentation


Artengine's public programs range from exhibitions to festivals. These events showcase the most exciting developments in the field of art and technology, and present research, creation, and emerging practices.
